2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A very uninspired average golden ale. More like a pilsner, but the usual crisp bitterness that comes with a pilsner was unpleasant. It was also quite carbonated. A little bready maltiness, but that was it. Unenjoyable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bomber. Very pale golden beer with a white head. Arom ais of fresh bready malt, a bit of honey and even a touch of wheaty character. Hop aroma is very low. Flavour is a bit sweet but does show nice fresh breadiness. It’s not going to win any awards but it’s a nice lawnmower type of brew.

Draft at brewpub. Poured golden color with a moderate frothy white head that diminished slowly with minimal lacing. Light sweet aroma. Light to medium body with a thin texture. Light sweet citrus flavor with a light sweet finish of short duration.

Kind of a cloudy golden color with some good spices. Taste is pretty dry like a pilsener. Really, I liked this much more than their Red and was pretty pleased overall with it.

DRAFT Very fair local that has decent bite. Very similar to IPAs of similar ilk. No head, and little flavor outside of the bite. A very fair option for a San Diego local.

Keg. Clear gold with a bubbly head. Aroma is bitter grain and metal. Flavor is okay. Some dry malt with the grassy flavors, but ends with the metallic bite. Good enough, but nothing special.

On tap at CBC - Golden color with light head. Vey light grain aroma. Very little malt flavor. Beer leans toward the bitter side. I’m was a little disappointed. I talked with the brewer and he said they are using only dry yeast in all their beers at this time. That could explain the lack of real flavor in most of their beers.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at brewery in Coronado, CA: Clear gold, island of head, no lacing. Nose of husky pale malt and metallic hops. The flavor is fairly bad with a dry bitter mouthfeel and tinny finish. Not a good start.
